Dutch Catechism, Alpha Courses & The Catechism of Perseverance

Dutch Catechism, Alpha Courses & The Catechism of Perseverance

The university of Nijmegen [Holland Netherlands], was where Dominican priest Fr. Edward Schillebeeckx penned his notorious Dutch Catechism, stripping the Church of any essential teachings and identity to accommodate the world. The revolutionaries like Schillebeeckx who were all the rage around the time of Vatican II set the Church on a course that would eradicate nearly all vestiges of Catholic belief here in Holland and, to lesser yet still significant degrees, many other places in the world as well. Here in the land of the Dutch, the Dutch Catechism, which was more Protestant than Catholic, has resulted in such a[…]

"Mirari Vos" On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism by Pope Gregory XVI - 1832

“Mirari Vos” On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism by Pope Gregory XVI – 1832

In the early 1800s, the Church in France, infected by the Revolution of 1789, turned to its charismatic philosopher and apologist, Abbe Felicite-Robert de Lamennais, promoter of a movement to “catholicize liberalism.” He expounded an alien philosophy based on a new theory of certitude claiming truth does not belong to individual reason, but to the universal consent of mankind. According to him, certainty of truth was not determined by evidence, but by the authority of mankind. The true religion, he concluded, is that which can put forth on its behalf the greatest number of witnesses. His opinions on liberty of[…]

Should a Catholic Celebrate Martin Luther? The Truth about Luthernism

The Truth about Luthernism

Pope Francis said that Catholics can learn a great deal from Lutherans, in an interview published on Vatican Radio website, as he prepared for a trip to Sweden to join in commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.   Why would a Catholic celebrate Martin Luther when his entire revolt was based on hatred of the Catholic Faith?  Let us see what exactly we can learn from the Lutherans, and from those who condemned Martin Luther’s teachings. Luther Attacks the Papacy A central focus of Luther’s 1517 revolt was a full scale attack on the papacy established by Christ. Luther did[…]

On the True Meaning of Religious Unity and Unity of the Church

From Pope Pius XI on the true meaning of Religious UnityMORTALIUM ANIMOS, ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS XI, JANUARY 6, 1928 On the correct understanding of Christian and religious unity, and the growth of the “ecumenical” and “interfaith” movement that was starting in his time, Pope Pius XI warned… “When the question of promoting unity among Christians is under consideration many are easily deceived by the semblance of good. … Yet beneath the coaxing words there is concealed an error so great that it would destroy utterly the foundations of the Catholic Faith.” “They, therefore, who profess themselves Christians cannot, We think, but believe in[…]

Lamentabili Sane: Syllabus Condemning the Errors of the Modernists by Pope Saint Pius X

With truly lamentable results, our age, casting aside all restraint in its search for the ultimate causes of things, frequently pursues novelties so ardently that it rejects the legacy of the human race. Thus it falls into very serious errors, which are even more serious when they concern sacred authority, the interpretation of Sacred Scripture, and the principal mysteries of Faith. The fact that many Catholic writers also go beyond the limits determined by the Fathers and the Church herself is extremely regrettable. In the name of higher knowledge and historical research (they say), they are looking for that progress[…]

Apparitions and Messages of Our Lady of Akita (1973 – 1981)

In 1984, just before retiring at a venerable age, the diocesan Bishop of Niigata, Bishop John Shojiro Ito, in consultation with the Holy See, wrote a pastoral letter in which he recognized as being authentically of the Mother of God, the extraordinary series of events that had taken place from 1973 to 1981 in a little lay convent within his diocese, at Akita, Japan. Cardinal Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), in June 1988, approved the Akita events as “reliable and worthy of belief”. In fact the Philippine ambassador to the Vatican, in 1998 spoke to Cardinal Ratzinger about Akita and the[…]

Medjugorje: Condemned by Tradition

“But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel to you other than that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema!” (Gal. 1:9) In her autobiography, Saint Teresa writes, “I only regard a revelation as true if it is in no way contrary to Holy Scripture and to the laws of the Church, which we are obliged to follow.” The soul favored with extraordinary graces “feels capable of confounding all the demons in order to uphold the smallest of the truths taught by the Church!” If a revelation “departed ever so little from[…]

Pope St. Pius X: “Restore All Things to Christ!”

“We were terrified beyond all else by the disastrous state of human society today. For who can fail to see that society is at the present time, more than in any past age, suffering from a terrible and deeprooted malady which, developing every day and eating into its inmost being, is dragging it to destruction? You understand, Venerable Brethren, what this disease is – apostasy from God, than which in truth nothing is more allied with ruin, according to the word of the Prophet: “For behold they that go far from Thee shall perish” (Ps. 1xxii., 17).” It was written by Pope[…]

Some Directives of the Magisterium on Christian Modesty

Christian Modesty and Modes of Dress We are all born with a fallen nature and, consequently, we must keep our bodies covered in order to avoid the dangers of concupiscence.  This fact, a result of original sin, is deliberately ignored each time that naturalism attempts to insinuate itself into our Christian customs.  Then it is that the purpose of clothing is lost sight of, and instead of being an invitation to virtue, it becomes an incitement to sin.  The Church, like a vigilant Mother, full of tender care for the holiness and eternal salvation of Her children, has often been[…]

Fear of God

The Fear of the LORD is the Beginning of Wisdom

Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill”  Matthew 5:17 Where is the fear of God? Who in his right mind dares to go contrary to the WORD of GOD? God has said in Leviticus 18:22: “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.”  Leviticus 20:13: “If any one lie with a man as with a woman, both have committed an abomination, let them be put to death: their blood be upon them”. And in Romans 1: 18-32[…]
